Author, Author!: with Andy Kopra

Monday, 9 February 2009

The book Writing mental ray Shaders is an introduction to shader programming with the mental ray renderer. Andy Kopra will describe the strategy he used to create a book that appeals to both artists learning how to program as well as to programmers interested in learning more about an artistic approach to rendering.

There will be a drawing for five copies of the book after the presentation ($160 value). The book includes a CDROM with free mental ray license.
